Ews, Or Laws of Shrithing
Every body keeps in its resthood, or of singale shrithing in a right line, unless it is aneeded to wend that resthood by thrakes put thereon.
Flones wone in their shrithings, so far as they are not slowed by the thrakes of the loft, or pulled downwards by the thrake of the Earth. A top, whose motes by their bonds are forever drawn aside from straight shrithings, does not stop its wharving, otherwise than as it is slowed by the loft. The greater bodies of the tungles and faxedstars, meeting with less gainstanding in more free rodder, keep their shrithings both singale and trendly for a much longer time.
The wend of shrithing is ever andeven to the shrithly thrake thrutched ; and is made in the rightling line in which that thrake is thrutched.
If any thrake affords a shrithing, a twifoldly thrake will afford a twofold shrithing, a threefoldly thrake will afford a threefoldly shrithing, whether that thrake be thrutched altoghether and at once, or stepwise and singale. And this shrithing (being always the same way as the affording thrake), if the body moved before, is eked to or fornimmed from the erstwhile shrithing, as whether they evenwork or gainstand each other ; or unforthrightly theeded, when they are unforthright, so as to bring forth a new shrithing heightened from the will of both.
To every thrake there is always an amake witherdeed ; or the evenworked deeds of two bodies upon each other are always amake, and witherwardly.
Whatever draws or thrutches another is as much drawn or thrutched by that other. If you thrutch a stone with your finger, the finger is also thrutched by the stone. If a horse draws a stone tied to a rope, the horse (if I may so say) will be amakenly drawn back toward the stone : for the stretched rope, by the same fand to loosen or unbend itself, will draw the horse as much toward the stone, as it does the stone toward the horse, and will wither the forthship of the one as much as it freems that of the other.
